TRANSLATION ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS—2013
French Voices Award — Heminwgay Grant — Acquisition of Rights
We are pleased to announce that the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, the Institut français and FACE are now accepting applications for their translation assistance programs.
The Book Department of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy works with FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), the Institut français and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to promote French and Francophone literature and to encourage English translations of French fiction and non-fiction. To that effect, it provides and oversees three bi-annual programs concerning translations from French into English of works that have not yet been published in the United States. The French Voices Award, Hemingway Grants and Acquisition of Rights Grants are awarded to fiction and non-fiction translations (including children’s books, comics and digital books).
To facilitate the application process, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy offers a single online application process. By filling out a form and uploading the necessary documents, you can apply directly online to the three following programs:
